This unit, “La ropa y Los colores” is designed for a Spanish 1 class of non-native speakers. This is the 4th unit in our school year. Students have previously learned how to describe themselves and others, school-related vocabulary, family members, and hobbies vocabulary. This unit will introduce clothing vocabulary and color vocabulary for the first time. This unit will have a lot of repetition to help students internalize the vocabulary and be able to produce sentences both in writing and speaking with confidence. Students will also be exposed to the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world through the use of videos, audio samples, readings, and class discussions. At the end of the unit, students will have a speaking Performance-Based Assessment in which they must describe what others are wearing in detail.
